Fichtner joins Knight

04.20.2007
God, THE DARK KNIGHT developments are rolling in by the hour now. After the recent pictures of Heath Ledger as The Joker, the newest piece of news is that William Fichtner (PRISON BREAK) has joined the cast, with Batman-on-Film seeming to think as the 'Bank Manager'. I would expect that if this is the case it's maybe a little bit more meaty a role than simply the manager of the bank, since Fichtner is a pretty good actor and would be wasted in such a nothing role. That said, this movie is going to be so bad-ass, it's no wonder Nolan seems to be collecting talented actors like they're bloody Pokemon.

I can't wait for more info to emerge regarding THE DARK KNIGHT, but sweet Jesus how much stuff can possibly be happening on this movie!

Yeah, the actor is generally a "hey, it's that guy" so I wouldn't be surprised if it's not a deeper role

Fichtner rocks as an actor, and Batman 2 can only benefit hugely from his participation :)

All I have to say here is...have you seen "What's The Worst That Could Happen?" with DeVito and Martin Lawrence?

Right, and if he rocked a marriage counselor when we didn't even see him, imagine what he could do with ten minutes of being a bank manager. I'm tellin ya, this movie is gonna ill, even if they give Ben Kingsley a two second role as "Guy on Street".

As great as Fichtner is, his role actually might be really small. After all, there's alot of actors that would love to play ANY role in a Batman movie...

"Whoa...wait...they're making a new Batman movie?!"

No. This is Beethoven's 6th. Of course they're making a new Batman movie!

Someone please tell me he was kidding about that statement. Of all the movies you could have not heard about....you miss Dark Knight? Oh well. Having said that, I loved Fichtner on Prison Break and can't wait to see him in this, whatever his role.

Doesn't shock me

I wouldn't be shocked if that was his only role... after all Rade Sherbedgia played a homeless man with two lines in Batman Begins

As far as I'm concerned, this Batman movie can do no wrong. Fitchner is a great character actor and should only add to the coolness of this flick.
